Netflix Christmas Movie Showdown: 'The Christmas Prince' And 'The Princess Switch'

"The Princess Switch" is one of Netflix's newest Christmas movies and it is everything I have ever wanted Vanessa Hudgens to star in. This awkward combo of "The Parent Trap" meets "Princess Diaries" meets "Princess and the Pauper" is sappy, sweet, predictable, and altogether a great story about love and Christmas. It is adorable and I adore it.

Netflix released "A Christmas Prince" in 2017 with a sequel premiering this year. "A Christmas Prince" is VERY similar to the first "Princess Diaries" movie, so much so the location is in Aldovia, a little too similar to Genovia I think. It is an obnoxious movie about a journalist falling in love with a king and learning what it is like to be royalty. It is every Hallmark, sappy fairytale you could want to be put together... and I love it!

Now that you have a brief summary, let's get to the showdown and see which movie comes out on top!

Lead actresses 

Vanessa Hudgens definitely wins with "The Princess Switch" for leads. She may have had a sub-par British accent, but she made Lindsay Lohan proud by acting as two characters in the same movie and falling in love with two handsome men at the same time!

Rose McIver, you were fine as Amber, but you just didn't quite match up to the more experienced Vanessa Hudgens. The

"The Princess Switch": 1

The Prince

This is a tough one because neither Prince was super handsome, super good at acting, or anything other than the stereotypical royal. However, Kevin in "The Princess Switch" was everything you could want in a baking champion. Dreamy, a baker, an adorable daughter, and sweeter than a cupcake. He is definitely my winner for this standoff.

The Royal Parents 

This one goes to Prince Richard's parents for sure. While Prince Edward's parents were fine and supportive, Richard's parents fell in love with Amber and were so ready to welcome her into the family. They represented everything I would want in a King and Queen as my parent!

Villains 

I would rather have no villain than a bad one and "The Princess Switch's" villain was just tragically predictable so for that I have to let "A Christmas Prince" tie us up going into the final round.

The Final Round - Level of Sappiness 

When I think Christmas rom-com, I think laughter, tears, joy, and a happy ending. Both of these movies were sappy and a happy tear-jerker, but The Princess Switch raised sappy levels through the roof compared to "A Christmas Prince." I don't know if it was the double love interest or the orphanage kids, but in my opinion, "The Princess Switch" was an overall sappier movie so it takes the cake from me.

The showdown is complete and "The Princess Switch" is the winner! If you haven't watched these movies yet, I highly recommend them both while you're cuddling up with your Santa cookies and enjoying the holidays!

When you give a girl a horse, you give her the responsibility of caring for something other than herself. You make her life bigger and more vibrant. You give her confidence in herself, and teach her the importance of hard work. You'll teach her to think for herself and make her own decisions. You'll give her independence.

Scarred

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Scarred
Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

Michigan rain vs. California rain (at Calvin College).

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:
